You should see them eat fruit flies.

It would be hard to get video of these little nymphs; they are tiny!

I might be getting some video later this week. I don't have my own video camera but I can check one out from the library.

Well I think it would be difficult to get much of a video of these tiny little mantises, but I want to get video showing some other terrarium setup stuff. I have a lot of real nice plants going right now.

These ones that I'm getting are real small nymphs, so it's going to be a while before I have adults.
No, I've never seen them before reading about them here in your thread but I looked them up and was blown away at how cool they are, this is the photo I liked and I have no idea about the different colorations.

They look fake, like you took a couple leaves and some super glue.

How many did you get and at what cost? Also can you tell the difference in males and females?

Those are beautiful! I have to run off to work so I don't have time to look them up, but they are a form of praying mantis? How exotic looking!
